My son appeared to be in the midst of a minor controversy that was brewing with a friend.
My wife noticed that he appeared more annoyed with each text he would send and then receive.
My wife had a good recommendation.
"Why don't you stop text messaging each other and just talk it out on the phone?"
He took her advice.
I think he was surprised.
My wife wasn't.
Neither was I.
Hopefully he'll remember it for the future even though it's such an outdated way of communicating.
